TheLSS-505 from Michley is a multi-purpose sewing machine that features double thread, double speed, 8 built-in stitch patterns, forward and reverse sewing and automatic thread rewind. Sews sleeves and had a built-in sewing light. Use hand switch or foot pedal to start. Drawer, thread cutter, foot pedal, adaptor, and thread bag included. Uses DC 6V power. Prior to creating the Michley LSS-505 review, I was curious as to the features and power such an economical machine would have. I found the Michley LSS-505 sewing machine to be a great beginner sewing machine. This sewing machine would come in handy for small craft projects hemming garments around the house. The Michley LSS-505 has eight built-in stitches, forward and reverse sewing for backstitching, and the ability to sew using either the foot pedal or buttons on the machine itself. I would recommend the Michley LSS-505 to anyone who either sews only for basic tasks or who has little experience in sewing and will be using the machine for basic functions. What Can I Sew? Sewing with the Michley LSS-505 sewing machine will be limited to basic fabrics and mending. This sewing machine will be great for an introduction to quilts, sewing linens, clothing, or even hemming. I would refrain from heavy use of thick fabrics such as denim or duck cloth, however hemming jeans would not be a problem for the Michley LSS-505. What’s In The Box? As with most budget sewing machines, the Michley LSS-505 comes with few accessories including; two thread spools, two metal bobbins, one needle, a needle threader, a foot pedal, and AC adaptor. You will have to purchase extra accessories as you find you need them. Pros: Unlike other budget sewing machines that run on batteries, the Michley LSS-505 comes with an AC adapter which will save you the headache of running out to buy batteries every time you want to use it, as well as the extra expense batteries bring in the long-run. This sewing machine is great for a beginner seamstress, or for basic home repairs. Construction: While I was creating the Michley LSS-505 review, I found that If not threaded properly, you can experience issues with the thread tension. You will want to make sure when threading the Michley LSS-505 for the first time, you follow the directions carefully and experiment to make sure the thread pulls easily without snapping. In Conclusion: I would recommend the Michley LSS-505 for basic home mending tasks or for a person new to sewing. You will get minor use out of this machine, and will eventually want to upgrade if you find yourself wanting to take on larger projects or sew on a more regular basis.
